Earn a college degree (35% vs. 17%)
Own their own homes (74% vs. 65%)
Have a higher average household income ($80,000 vs. $61,000)
83% of men who were Scouts agreed that the values they learned in Scouting continue to be very important to them today.
Likewise, a recent study by Baylor University found that compared to their non-Eagle Scout counterparts, men who had achieved the rank of Eagle Scout were more likely to:
Have higher levels of planning and preparation skills, be goal-oriented, and network with others
Be in a leadership position at their place of employment or local community
Report having closer relationships with family and friends
Volunteer for religious and nonreligious organizations
Donate money to charitable groups
